Importing past Events from Google Calendar into WordPress calendar

    Hi Helpdesk,
    Can you tell me please how to import past events from our Google Calendar into the WordPress website calendar. I can’t find a way to do it in either in imports or settings.

    We’ve just cleared out all events in the WordPress Calendar and then re-imported all Google Calendar events.

    As a result, all events are showing from 13th August 2018 forward on the website calendar. However, from an aesthetics point of view, we want all of August’s events to be showing and possibly a couple of months prior to that.

    Many thanks,

    Matthew and Mark

    Oh, and also make sure you have the settings you want at wp-admin > Events > Settings > Imports tab > “Global Import Settings” section:

    • Import Limit Type setting
    • and¬†Import Date Range Limit setting

    Hope this helps!

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
